The Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge is an excellent location for outdoor adventures, even if you don’t quite think you’re outdoorsy! From biking to hiking and dune buggy rides, there is an activity for all ages, all skill levels and for those who simply appreciate great scenery.

CNN’s Beth J. Harpaz recently traveled to Hood River with her husband and two sons, and they visited Multnomah Falls, the Mosier Twin Tunnels, Mt. Hood Adventure Park and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. She said, “Yes, our family is more comfortable on city streets and subways than in the great outdoors. But our Oregon adventures were a blast. Next time, I might even try windsurfing, which Hood River is famous for.” To read all about the Harpaz family’s Oregon adventure, please click here for the full article.

Summer is right around the corner, so now is the perfect time to plan a trip to the Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge region. Give windsurfing a try, fish or raft the beautiful waterways, or visit a local event. The possibilities are endless!

    And don’t forget, it’s Mountain Biking season out here in the Gorge and Mt. Hood Valleys! Our trails are melting and it’s looking to be a great year for riding. Be sure to check out the local bike shops for trail status, and any last minute gear you might need. There is now a bike shop located in Hood River’s Upper Valley in Mt. Hood, Dog River Cycles, right near the Dog River, Surveyor’s and Oak Ridge Trailheads.
